Out of interest, what database are you searching to get that info, ridetheory? That's kinda cool - I'm expecting it's not a free database, though. I see a mention of ProQuest in your citation?

My local library gives me access to the NYT Historical database. I can get at it from home with my library card number. I have to transcribe the text, because it's all presented as PDF scans of the original. (Well, some kind of scan of the microfilm master, I'm guessing...) The database behind it must be huge, because it will find a single word within those PDF files -- somewhere, there must be a text version of the entire run of the paper from the 1850s!

The story from the database refers to events which happened after the end of World War2 and probably in 1945. The small clipping appears to be part of a larger story, probably written in 1945. Referring to another topic , previously you expressed interest the life of Mr Medicus. I cannot confirm this but his widow may have been Rose Medicus and a son named Stephen and the data-base might yield further info.

That story came from the May 1, 1939 edition of the New York Times. The link I just posted is to a screenshot of the image of the page, showing the date and the headline.

Forum: movie_of_the_week Subject: Huh?

Maybe you can be more specific and tell me what events in the article happened after it was written. Did the Nazis invade Czechoslovakia after WWII? Did the World of Tommorrow exposition, commonly known as the 1939 World's Fair, open after 1945? Or do you live in some alternative timeline from the one I inhabit -- one in which Hitler won the war, or where he became a famous painter?
